Do you get food stamps?

If so, how long have you been receiving them? Have they helped your family a lot?

  • I have been getting them for a bit. I get $88, and they help tremendously. I DO work full-time, but, I am single and get no support. I am buying a house and I pay all my own bills.

  • ive been on food stamps since march. i get 350 a month and they definatly help out. we live in NY, i cant find a job right now and im home with my son - my SO and my mom pay all of the bills. our rent alone is 1350 a month plus utilities so even though my mom makes good money, and my SO is doing alright too its still a struggle so atleast i can help with food.

  • No. We applied when we were both unemployed and were denied because I have a retirement savings account. I guess we're supposed to be absolutely penniless before we qualify. Whatever. My husband has a job now.
